Long Time No C

Posted 14 June 2019 - 01:19 AM

Can confirm that killzone at least is dead. Tried to trade that in by itself and offered me 2.40 for it. Was told promo probably ended already. They probably excluded killzone from promo for some odd reason

lol I'm pretty sure that "odd reason" is the amount times the game was being flipped across the country

Can confirm $5 extra credit on $2 base games was still working at closing tonight. Traded about 10 $2 games but they were not the ones being flipped in this thread.

Ah ok so they just targeted those games. Hilarious. Glad I only had one left for today, and it was a breakeven trade

Closest you'll get is probably a Banana Republic/Gap/Old Navy card

I ended up with an Old Navy card.  Thanks!

Big thank you to whoever mentioned the $2 VR headset. I was able to find one near me. Employee was surprised they had one, but was able to find it in storage. It was caked in dust since it was sitting on top of a shelf since 2017, but totally worth it.

It's really odd too. They would have to go in and change things so that only those 3 games didn't get the promo applied. And then you have to wonder how they came to that conclusion. Was it just a spike in those sales or something else.


Clearly this anomaly is the product of IATCG wreaking his vengeful justice upon us. This is the power of certified letters!

I think I used up some of my GS luck recently.   I decided to order Castlevania: DoS and PoR during the B1G1 50% off they have going.  They showed up yesterday, and they were complete copies!   Made me very happy.   Much cheaper than Ebay prices.  :D

I feel like it is hard enough to get the right game or one that works let alone a complete copy out of the warehouse. A complete copy of something portable never happens and getting two is like winning powerball type odds.

Employees can see ur past transactions right? I’m surprised they’re not mentioning to u guys that u recently bought the game and are trading em back in. It’s scary

I want to trade in my XB1S for the $200 as well but don't know if I really need a second Switch.   Wish it was either store credit or one of the new versions rumored.

Ummm that's the Gamestop business model. They want you to Buy and then Trade/Sell back to them rinse repeat. And honestly take any new release game and check Pre-Owned stock levels shortly after release. Even the day after something comes out, there are generally copies that have already been traded in within the 250 mile radius of your location. And they can only see the last 5 items purchased even if you bought 30 items on the same receipt.

I went in yesterday to trade in my last copy of Killzone. The guy behind the counter couldn't understand why it didn't ring up the additional $5 for the promotion and he manually put it in for me. I didn't even have to say a word.

Do a system update at home, do not wipe/initialize/reset the console, and log in with a dummy account when/before you bring it in.

But flipping between GS does nothing for them other than giving us more credit.

Congrats on lucking out! You got some great taste too. Love those Castlevania, they're among the best in the series. Played the f*** out of them back in the day.

Did you trade in a console towards the switch?

I usually make a plan to flip from a store that has one game to another store that has a different game. In this way, I'm distributing the inventory for them. GS should thank us.

I had reset my Xbox prior because I don't trust them to reset it. Employee plugged it in and got the "checking for updates" screen, eventually it  said needed to be updated. I insisted that it was updated and said it's just not connected to a network to check. She said it could check for updates (HOW?!?!?!) and I'd have to update it and bring it back. I pushed and she entered wifi connection and Xbox said, "this is awkward the system does not need an update". HA. Then, she said I'd get $100 for it and I said there's a promo for $200 off the Switch [showed her the flyer and she pointed to the OG One and said yeah, $100]. She finally added the Switch and what do ya know...$200 off.

 

Asked for a gift receipt and she said I could just use the regular one. I said I'd like the gift receipt and she pretended like it wasn't possible before reluctantly printing it and throwing it in the bag.

 

Goodness gracious.
